“This is where your holiday should start!”
Reviewed August 12, 2012 via mobile

We visited Kyano on the 2nd night of our holiday. As we watched the sunset at our beach side table with a cocktail, I realised why we had chosen Crete as our holiday destination. This place is just ace. Decent honest food, well priced, fabulous staff and no 'hard sell'. There is a small play area for children. Please try it, we have been twice in four nights!

“Laid-back beach restaurant with tasty Cretan food”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

I’ve been in Platanias area several times and been eating at Kyano more than 10 times, and I can warmly recommend Kyano to everybody.

First of all food is simple as it should be in Crete, but very good and delicious. Ask from the staff some recommendations, but try at least mussels and on Sundays pork from the grill. All portions are large in size, so you can even take a few and share those with your company to taste variety of all those lovely flavors.

The location on the beach is great: you can easily go there for a lunch directly from the beach or sit there having a long, atmospheric dinner watching a sunset and after that under the stars.

And last but not least atmosphere is very laid-back and all staff of this restaurant is so friendly. You always feel welcome, either you’re eating with your family, group of your best friends or just alone. (Special thanks to lovely Kostas and funny Yiannis.)

Looking forward to come back again.
